The Toledo Area Council of Hostelling International (HI-Toledo) hosts its 36th annual Irish Hills Bicycle Tour on Sunday, September 21, 2008 in Sylvania, Ohio. This Tour is one of only two left in HI-Toledo's Bike Tour Season, with the Tombstone Bicycle Tour following on October 19, 2008.

The Irish Hills Bicycle Tour takes riders through the beautifully varied-terrain of Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. Riders may complete the tour at their own pace and choose from varying distances—10 miles, 31 miles, 65 miles, and 100 miles. This makes the ride ideal for both novice and experienced riders, and is a great opportunity for children. However, children under 16 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
